Calgary, Alberta (October 6, 2017) – The PCL family of companies is pleased to announce that The Rocky Ridge Recreation Facility (RRRF), built by PCL Construction Management Inc. (Calgary), was declared the overall winner at the Canada Building Information Modeling (CanBIM) awards in Toronto on September 28.

PCL won the General Contractors Award which recognizes companies that are working with or implementing BIM and Virtual Design Construction (VDC). Following this award, the CanBIM Board of Directors reviewed the winning candidates in that category along with seven others, and selected RRRF as the overall “Best In BIM” winner, based on overall excellence in collaboration across disciplines and integration of information.

PCL Calgary’s vice president, Blaine Maciborsky said, “It is an honor for The Rocky Ridge Recreation Facility and our team to win these two awards, and we are very proud of everyone involved with making this such a successful project. This couldn’t have been accomplished without BIM and excellent teamwork.”  

The Rocky Ridge Recreation Facility was commissioned by The City of Calgary, and will be operated as The Shane Homes YMCA at Rocky Ridge.

BIM 360 at the Rocky Ridge Recreation Facility

The BIM 360 modeling process helped all project stakeholders visualize and coordinate the final details of the complex design. It created a real-time environment for trade contractors to collaborate in parallel and allowed the team to prefabricate major elements accurately and with the confidence that installation would be seamless on-site. The final results of using a fully coordinated 3D BIM model were realized in improved performance in safety, quality, cost, and schedule.
